Inland Waterways Conference And Trade Show To Be Held In Louisville Aug. 26-28

The first annual International Inland Waterways Conference & Trade Show is scheduled to be held August 26-28, 1983, at the Kentucky Fair & Exposition Center in Louisville. This new conference and trade show will be of major importance to all rivermen — waterway users, port and w a t e r w a y builders, operators, maintainers, shippers, and shipyard and repair facility managers.

The Rivermen's Exchange will provide a forum for the exchange of ideas, facts, and new product information. Formal conferences, informal shirt-sleeve workshops, and exhibitor functions are being professionally planned to enable all interested rivermen to broaden their knowledge and see the newest available products at this intensive, three-day meeting.

Vice President George Bush and many other key figures of national and international prominence will be present to express their views on the future growth of inland waterways — both in this country and abroad.

The workshops will cover topics such as fuel management; marine product liability; foreign waterways; ports and terminals; d o c k c o n s t r u c t i o n ; and crew training. In addition to the conference, there will be a daily trade show with exhibitors displaying the latest equipment for the water transportation industry.

Registration for the general sessions and trade show is $10 in advance, $15 at the door. Cost to enroll ip the workshops is $55 for one workshop or three for $140, while the entire package is available in advance for just $150. Exhibitor space is still available.
